Exotic Mayhem

Not sure if these pictures do justice to the devastation caused, but a massive syringa tree fell down in my neighbours garden. Its core was rotten, probably due to the long, humid, wet summer we had in Durban. The tree narrowly missed the house but destroyed much of the garden and the balcony.

Another reason to plant indigenous?
